I just bought a house at auction in Oakley. Conveyancing is necessary. What are my next steps?

Now that you are legally committed yourself to purchase you should instruct a conveyancing practitioner soon as you will have a pending deadline in which to complete the conveyancing. All auction property will ordinarily have a bespoke legal set of papers. This will likely include evidence of title and search results. If you have purchased leasehold property the legal pack should provide a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and other conveyancing documentation pertinent to leasehold premises. You must give this to your appointed conveyancing solicitor as soon as possible. You also need to ensure that your finances are in order to complete on the date specified in the contract.

Can you point me to a directory of Santander panel solicitors in Oakley on the Council of Mortgage Lender’s Website?

I have a mortgage with Coventry BS for my property in Oakley. Conveyancing was finalised a year ago. If I am intending to rent out the flat and do not currently have a buy-to-let mortgage do I need to remortgage to a BTL mortgage or inform Coventry BS?

Your original mortgage agreement with Coventry BS will provide that you need their approval prior to letting out your property as this is likely to be a breach of Coventry BS’s mortgage conditions. It may be that Coventry BS will permit you to let out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk. You should contact Coventry BS directly. You need not do this via a Coventry BS conveyancing panel firm.

Will our lawyer be asking questions about flooding as part of the conveyancing in Oakley.

Flooding is a growing risk for lawyers conducting conveyancing in Oakley. Plenty of people will buy a house in Oakley, fully expectant that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, leaving to one side the physical damage, where a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to get a mortgage, satisfactory insurance cover, or dispose of the property. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the purchaser.

Solicitors are not qualified to offer advice on flood risk, but there are a number of searches that can be initiated by the purchaser or on a buyer’s behalf which should figure out the risks in Oakley. The conventional set of information supplied to a buyer’s conveyancer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) incorporates a usual inquiry of the seller to discover if the property has suffered from flooding. If the property has been flooded in past which is not notified by the vendor, then a buyer may commence a claim for damages resulting from an misleading reply. A buyer’s conveyancers should also conduct an environmental report. This will reveal whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, additional inquiries will need to be made.

I wish to sublet my leasehold flat in Oakley. Conveyancing solicitor who did the purchase is retired - so can't ask her. Is permission from the freeholder required?

A small minority of properties in Oakley do contain a provision to say that subletting is only allowed with permission. The landlord is not entitled to unreasonably refuse but, in such cases, they would need to review references. Experience suggests that problems are usually caused by unsatisfactory tenants rather than owner-occupiers and for that reason you can expect the freeholder to take up the references and consider them carefully before granting consent.

Oakley Leasehold Conveyancing - Examples of Questions you should ask before buying

    Please inform me if there are any major works anticipated that could add a premium to the maintenance charges? The best form of lease structure is a share of the freehold. In this scenario the leaseholders enjoy being in charge if their destiny and although a managing agent is usually employed where the building is larger than a house conversion, the managing agent retained by the leaseholders. Generally speaking the cost for major works tend not to be wrapped into the service charges, albeit that some managing agents in Oakley obliged leaseholders to contribute towards a sinking fund created for the specific purpose of establishing a fund for major repairs or maintenance.
